Republican Senators Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson sounded the alarm on the Senate floor about alleged financial dealings between the Chinese government and Joe Biden’s son Hunter.
As Fox News reported, Johnson said “Over the course of our investigation into how Hunter Biden used his father’s position and name to enrich himself and his family, the dishonest press published countless stories reporting on the Democrats’ false charge that we were soliciting and disseminating Russian disinformation. Once we issued our September and November 2020 reports, which were based almost exclusively on U.S. sourced documents and interviews with U.S. citizens, the media largely ignored it. When they did write a story on it, they declared that our reports found nothing new. A classic media cover-up.”
Johnson added “the false attacks have not deterred us. That’s why we’re presenting additional evidence today and over the next few days. For example, this is the first time this document is being made public. It shows that money from CEFC – which is effectively an arm of the Chinese Government – went directly to Hunter Biden.”
According to a receipt provided by the senators, the state-controlled Chinese energy company CEFC paid Wells Fargo Clearing Services $100,000 with “further credit” going to Owasco, Hunter Biden’s firm.
Meanwhile in the House, Representative Matt Gaetz entered material from Hunter’s laptop into the Congressional record and pressed the FBI’s Cyber Division Assistant Director Bryan Vorndran for answers. During the grilling, Vorndran refused to answer questions about the location of Hunter’s laptop, pleading ignorance.
“Has FBI Cyber assessed whether or not Hunter Biden’s laptop could be a point of vulnerability, allowing America’s enemies to hurt our country,” Gaetz further inquired, leading to Vorndran claiming that such an investigation wouldn’t fall under his preview.
“In December 2019, they turned over this laptop to the FBI, and now what you’re telling me right here is that as the Assistant Director of FBI Cyber, you don’t know where this is after it was turned over to you three years ago,” Gaetz fired back.
“Yes sir, that is an accurate statement,” Vorndran replied.
